We are looking for workawayers this year november. We would prefer somebody who has some skills int building work as we will renovate our huge kitchen, so experience in tiling etc. would be great.
We are a belgian-german family, living here in beautiful South-West of France for many years. We have two children, twins of 19, a boy and a girl who are studying in beautiful Toulouse which gives us the nice opportunity to go quiet often to the city .
We live in an old 17th century farmhouse in the middle of vineyards and nature. We are working in tourism, so we are very busy in the summer but we got plenty of time in the winter where we both love to go to cinema, reading, cooking, listening to music or playing piano . Bernard is also working as a Gestalttherapist.
We offer good and healthy, mostly organic food ( Bernard is a well known chef in this region) and the joy to make new friends. We understand if you are vegetarian or need any special food but we would prefer somebody just sharing our regular daily meals.
Last but not least if we have a choice we would prefer to find a couple or two friends as we are living in a rural spot of France. There are a lot of possibilitys to walk or bike but we are quiet far from towns. If it's just one person you would really need to appreciate being also on your own regularly.
We look very much forward hearing from you and learn more about you and your country!
Be sure you will be welcome in our family!

We are really in the middle of the french countryside, the next village is 2 km away, little towns are 10 km and Toulouse or Bordeaux 1h30 drive.It is very beautiful here and there is a lot to visit, castles, middle age villages and towns, prehistoric caves but it's much easier if you have your own car.
